I just wanted to tell you thank you. Thank you for the tears you made me cry, the nights you made me stay up worrying about “us”, and the countless times you made me feel like I was worthless. These things probably seem like weird things to be thanking you for, but in my mind it makes complete sense to thank you for all these things.
I am thanking you because with every fallen tear, sleepless night, and hurtful word I became stronger. I began to realize that I am a good person, who deserves to have a good life. A good life full of people who build me up instead of trying to break me down. A good life spent with days full of smiles instead of frowns.
Thanks to you I realized that it’s possible to find someone who loves you for who you are and treats you right. Thanks to you I have found that person for me who is trying to brighten my day and make me smile, instead of darkening it and bring me to tears.
I hope that someday you will realize that how you treat others is unfair. Not just to them, but moreso to yourself. It’s unfair to you because I know that you truly are a good guy with a good heart. You have just been hurt and been put through a lot of terrible things, so you build a wall and push people away. I hope that someday you will let someone break through your walls and pull someone closer instead of pushing them away.
And if that day comes I can only hope that you will be able to be thankful for all the bad things, because those things helped to guide you to the good.
Always & Forever,
